Capybara Quest is a homebrew platformer for the Game Boy Color about a capybara who goes on a journey to rescue its baby capybara from a pelican that flew off with it. Along the way, the capybara can collect fruits called Yuzus as an optional sidequest.
Despite this run looking longer than the previous one, Alyosha and brunovalads actually save one frame of gameplay time with a single carefully timed button press.

The Pact is a short homebrew puzzle-platformer for the Game Boy Color. The simple premise has sworn enemies Bop Bop the Rabbit and Wile F. the Dragon being forced to work together to escape Cayate the Ogre's castle after he traps them there. Each character has their own unique quirk: Bop Bop is the only one that can end the level by reaching the exit, and Wile F. can walk on spikes. Both characters have the ability to turn into statues that freeze in place while they take turns moving. This can be used to get around various obstacles in each room.
In this run, brunovalads plays the 1.0 version of the game for the level breaking glitches it has that were fixed in later versions, and beats the game while collecting all the fruit in record time.

The Wit.nes is an NES demake of the 2016 puzzle game "The Witness". The game features a various collection of grid puzzles, with each one unlocking a new puzzle or a new area on the map. Some puzzles will have different symbols that signify different ways a puzzle has to be solved, such as separating colored dots or drawing different shapes with each line.
Despite being fully playable and having the support of Jonathan Blow (the creator of the original game), The Wit.nes was only released as a demo and never saw further updates.
FractalFusion improves on the predecessor movie by 00:00.72 seconds via new routing and largely thanks to a new solution proposed by I have no name to one of the puzzles. In addition to a faster completion time, this run has a side-goal of making as many 90-degree turns as possible, which ended up being 315 (see the submission notes for more details).

In Daze Before Christmas, you're Santa. According to the game's advent calender, you have 24 areas to explore such as factories, workshops, caves, and more. Each area is filled with nasty enemies like penguins, jack-in-the-boxes, helicopters, snowmen, and many others. Furthermore, after every five areas, Santa has to come face-to-face with not only The Evil Snowman, The Timekeeper, and Louse the Mouse, but also Mr. Weather.
The game itself was scheduled for an American release; however, Sunsoft of America filed for bankruptcy before that.
BrunoValads completes the game in record time.
